Natural Born Leader and Rock Star
Others have ancient reasons (or ancient memories) to honor Leos as protective leaders. They are, or soon will be, willing to follow you anywhere, oh Great Lion of Summer. This could be your coworkers, your adoring lovers, children or fans following your amazing creations.
It’s no mistake that the most obvious monument to Leo is the amazing Sphinx on the Giza plateau, peering over its domain next to the pyramids. The very structure of the Sphinx is a model of your constellation and the way that you express your natural self.
The Egyptians honored you both as their goddess Sekhmet, the fierce protector of their great nation, and Bastet (or Bast), her sister who represented their smaller feline companions of joy and celebration.
Sekhmet was called upon for protection, yet she was feared and beloved as a primal force, as you can be in bed, much to your lover’s delight, or simply when you are enthused about something. Sekhmet’s domain of Ancient Egypt remained safe under her fierce eyes for thousands of years! If someone challenges your honor, your eyes can strike equal fear in them and give them pause to think. If they respect your defending and caring nature and creative qualities, then you return their feelings.
Bastet, the feline companion, was a great reason for the Egyptians to celebrate by partying for over a week when they honored her cat energy. They would sail the Nile on barges in states of ecstasy to her sacred temple. If you are, or plan to be a rock star, actor or other creative artist, you can watch your fans party wildly at your performances.
Bastet is the sexy, affectionate, prancing side of you that everyone wants to cuddle or faint over if you really “strut your stuff!” This goddess form of you brings absolute enjoyment and a true “party animal” out. Think of the supporters’ reaction to President Obama’s election as well as a Rolling Stones concert where Mick Jagger continues to “strut his own Leo stuff” at the youthful age of 69! Longevity is another quality Leo’s usually enjoy.
And about your sexier qualities, Leo, it’s also all about that amazing hair you toss so provocatively. Watching rock stars or sex goddesses toss their beautiful manes of hair can bring rapture from their admirers, and you have that same ability. If you look at the ancient symbols of protection, hair is one of them. Remember Delilah cutting off Sampson’s hair—or power? Also, the fluffy tuft of the Great Lion’s tail in the heavens is the hair of Coma Berenice. She was a Roman, mythic figure who offered her beautiful hair to the Great Goddess to protect her new husband in battle. When he returned safely, she sheared her admired locks and placed them on the altar of the Goddess.
At the same time—roughly—as neighbor to Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia considered the Great Lion as having both masculine and feminine expressions. Their goddess Inanna in her warrior phase stood on the back of the lion Latarak who was her totem—or sacred animal—yet she was the great feline lover in her other expression as a sex partner and giver of life. Their god, Latarak, had the head of a lion and was considered a protector as well as being a “hottie.”
The Royal Star Regulus at the Heart of your Great Lion in the sky has been a symbol of power and leadership across many cultures. It can actually give you assured success if you are aligned with its energy and use it. The Chinese saw this area as their great female ruler and her family and court.
The Chinese also saw the eyes of the Great Red Bird as part of your “star group.” At your Leo time of year, the heart of this Great Red Bird appeared in the sky and the leaders and others in power showed charity to the masses and gave awards to the virtuous and others who were considered worthy. Also, there was the symbol of eternity, the Sacred Willow Tree, that was sacrificed to the Sun in this area of the sky.
Leos, toss that hair, create from your soul and love your followers. Use your fierce, protective qualities to lead your team, your department, your company or a nation. Whatever feels right is for you, and you will know the ultimate joy of expressing your true being.
